How To Get Food
The Cobourg and Port Hope Fare Share Food Bank locations have scheduled pick-up dates and times.
On your first visit to one of these food bank locations, you'll receive a calendar punch card for the location you'll be using. (Please bring identification with you, FOR EACH FAMILY MEMBER, to receive your calendar card). This card will provide you with all the information you need to pick up your food package. Your card will be punched at each visit to indicate that your food order has been collected.
